Intrinsic dimensions
    The width and height as defined by the element itself, not imposed
    by the surroundings.


and baseline?  Image formats are OK just with height and width but
textual formats need hight depth and width. So that the baselines line
up correctly.

Also the natural (intrinsic) height of a math fragment _is_
affected by the suureoundings, in particular the current font size
which comes from css, browser settings or whatever.
